Panasonic's continued investment in Wales


Electronics giant Panasonic came to Wales at a time when the economy was boosted by inward investment from a host of Japanese firms.

BBC Radio Wales' Oliver Hides talks about the company's history in Wales with Keith Kawata, who set up the microwave oven plant in Cardiff in 1988, and Conrad McDonogh, director of the home appliances division.

BBC Wales economics correspondent Sarah Dickins also discusses why so many Japanese companies came to Wales.
